Historic Miniature Rifle meeting - match report

posted 20 Aug 2018, 02:50 by Tony Cattermole
Here is an Excel spreadsheet containing the results from the Historic Miniature Rifle meeting last weekend. This was the fifth year of the HBSA running the Historic Miniature Rifle event on the Winans range in August.
Scores continued to be very close, especially in the Supported classes, which remain popular.  "Victor Ludorum" goes to Ian Grant, who also wins the Special Prize for the most rounds fired!

 Sunday was busier than last year so our total numbers were about the same as 2017. Some very good scores were made, and some nice rifles seen. In particular I was pleased to see a rook rifle in the tiny 297/230 centrefire calibre doing so well. He uses 1.4 grains of powder apparently – very economical!
It was good to see so many Prone shooters, and that these 100 year old rifles are still accurate.

In particular I must thank my helpers Linda and Mike Welsh, who scored all the cards very promptly, Your friendly range officers were John Woodward and Adrian Dagger, who also found time to compete.
All comments about improvements, and offers of help for future years will be gratefully received.
